Our Welcome Team is ready to welcome you to Green Acres South and answer any questions you might have. You can find them at all of our entrances and at the Welcome Center located in the east lobby. They will have some information for you and will be available to answer your questions. If you arrive for Sunday Morning Bible Study, they will be happy to help you find your classes. If you arrive for worship, they will be happy to help you find a seat.
Our Campus Pastor, Dustin Slaton, tries to get around to every guest before the service, but sometimes he can't get around to everyone. He always stands near the canopy entrance at the end of services, and looks forward to meeting you. He even has a gift for you!
Park anywhere! At GABC South, every parking spot is close, so find a spot and come on in!
You can enter GABC South's parking by coming in the main entrance off of County Road 137, or by entering the Recreation Outreach Center (ROC) entrance and coming up the back road to the West Parking Lot.
Mobility Impaired parking is available in front near the canopy and down the west side of the building.
If the weather is bad, feel free to drive through the canopy and drop off the family before going to park. Just, please do not leave your vehicle unattended so as to not block the drive through.
To ensure the safety of those attending GABC South, the west entrance doors are locked at 9:30, and reopen at 10:15. The front doors remain open through SMBS. All doors are locked at 11:00, but our welcome team will be nearby to open the doors for those who come late. Guests are always encouraged to enter through the front entrances.
Our Sunday Morning Bible Study groups (SMBS) meet for an hour beginning at 9:15am. We have groups with many different options.
Our Kids Ministry offers groups for Pre-K to 5th grade.
Our Student Ministry has groups for 6th to 12th grade.
Our adult classes have many options for specific age groups, men, women and coed.
On Wednesday evenings we have Wednesday Evening Bible Study (WEBS) for adults, which starts at 6:00pm. Students and Children also have groups which meet at the same time. Click here to get more info on our WEBS classes.
At Green Acres South, we have a great worship time led by our music team. The music is an up-beat, band led, blended style, incorporating classic hymns and new songs to bring our diverse members together in worship. There will typically be something different in each service, whether it is a special time or prayer or a focus on something God has done. Dr. David Dykes, the Senior Pastor at Green Acres, preaches a challenging, Biblical message each Sunday, which is viewed at the South Campus on-screen via live feed.
For a more complete description of our worship time, check out our Worship Page.
We also have Children's Church for our Pre-K kids.
At GABC South, kids are a top priority! That's why we strive to provide a clean, safe, and fun environment where they can be taught the truths of Christ. We are excited about our new facility being constructed right now because it will give us an improved area to meet these goals.
We provide nursery care for newborns to 4 year olds during SMBS, Sunday morning worship and Wednesday Evening Bible Study.
We use a computer check-in system to provide a safe and secure drop-off and pick-up process to ensure that your children are only given to an authorized adult. If this is your first time, you can sign in as a guest. If you plan to come back in the future, you can fill out an SMBS registration form and we will put you in the system for next time. You can set up an account for your children at the check-in computer near the Kidz area.
